One of the great benefits of Cisco Aironet 2800 series is that it can work on mobility express mode with a specific IOS version which converts the Access point to a wireless LAN controller (with fewer features than the real WLC) which reduced the cost of buying a physical WLC and gives the high availability of WLC when the mail AP [goes] down.

No recuerdo algun add-on que hayamos implementado, ojala fueran un poco más específicos.

I don't remember which add-on we've implemented, I wish this question had been more specific.

You can equip your 8000 series access points with external antennas that optimize the performance and avoid interference in a better way.

But in the scenario where our access points are installed we don't have the need for equipping these modular components. I recommend equipping them in scenarios where you maybe will have a lot of interference and a lot of users connecting to the access point.

We have not benefited from certain features we would like to implement in our network, as they are not widely available on most AP models but only on selected ones. The example is WIPS., which is supported as integrated feature on only selected models. Using standard models we are forced to deploy extra APs to perform WIPS functionality.

If you're referring to the WSSI modules, then, of course, it's cool to have a feature that scan/monitor/secure the wireless environment while still service clients. But shouldn't this be standardized into the design across all the AP, especially the 1800 and above? The Cisco ISR Routers have come far with consolidating multiple functions into a single device and I feel wireless should do the same.

None the less, the modules do add very good visibility into the wireless environment and provide techniques for mitigating issues to improve wireless throughput, but we haven't explored much into this. With the CleanAir technology that is built into some of the Cisco APs, we found that we can meet our needs. However, when required, you can can convert an actual AP to carry out some of these functions to troubleshoot faults (although this means that they cannot serve clients when you do).

We utilize additional antennas to provide maximum coverage range in our client interface zone. They have the option for four different external antennas. We can also reduce the antennas to put them in a more targeted zone and still make it look non-intrusive.

The Mobility Express is perfect for every kind of business, you have a web GUI that makes easy to configure and easy to deploy our devices. This solution gives us analytics, reports, and the coolest thing: we have our WLC on one AP, so, now, deploying a wifi solution is cheaper, we have mobility and enhanced security from a single point of administration for up to 80 APs into the same WLC.
